Alleged Ohio terror cell was looking to expand into Chicago

Yesterday's news reports were dominated by the federal indictment of four Ohio men accused of operating a terror cell there.

And besides attacking US troops in Iraq and assassinating President Bush as its alleged goal, the group of four was looking to recruit members in Illinois, the Chicago Tribune reports:

The plot also included plans to set up a dummy foundation to raise money for the terrorist operation, funneling funds and computers to co-conspirators in the Middle East, and recruiting at least two people, both from Chicago, for jihadist training, court papers state.

I'm sure we'll here more about other endeavors of this group.
